Consider… Horrible things happen.
Sometimes we make choices that contribute to them,
but often times, they just are.
Where is God in the midst of catastrophe?
In the midst of the crummiest of situations?
This Lent, we’ll be looking at a variety of ways that we as humans suffer.
And through it all, we’ll remember that
suffering is never the end of the story.
Together, we’ll remember that we are not alone.
Together, we’ll remember that God is with us.
REFLECT on some of the hard times in your life.
Consider how, in looking back,
there were glimpses of hope,
even in the midst of the darkest times.
Pray Thank you God
for being with me,
today and always.
Thank you for being with me
when I am laughing,
when I am crying,
when I am in pain,
when I am experiencing delight.
Help me to remember this truth always,
but especially in the bleakest of moments.
